increasing your risk of very malignant cancers for which the diagnosis of basically a death studies in europe show that people who use cell phones heavily for over ten years have a doubled risk of brain cancer and those who begin using cell phones and teenagers have a four to five times higher risk that type of research led the world health organization in two thousand and eleven to classify cell phones as a possible carcinogen in the same category as lead engine exhaust d.d.t. and jet fuel evidence has continued to mount twenty eighteen has been a watershed year for research on the effects of cell phone and cell tower radiation in march a large scale lifetime study in italy found that rats who were exposed to levels of cell tower radiation found in the environment developed cancerous tumors in the heart and in the brain the same month. but u.s. national toxicology program study found the same results and after a panel of scientists reviewed the study they concluded there was quote clear

evidence linking cell phone radiation to cancer gerald mitchell was the c.e.o. of a successful business in two thousand and nine he was named by yahoo finance as one of the top one hundred marketing minds in the u.s. in the same year mitchell was diagnosed with stage four glioblastoma an aggressive form of brain cancer that is often a death sentence for for a least or four hours or so per day i held the phone right here because i'm right handed all right and i asked you to look at the side of my head now ok that's the result of two creamy armies doctors told mitchell he had nine to twelve months to live nine years later he's beating the odds but struggles with everyday tasks he hopes his story will spur wireless companies to take responsibility for dangerous products they sell to an unwitting public every day i
12:11 pm
go through scenario of asking myself how would our license been different if this hadn't happened and i just i just don't understand how the cell phone companies won't come forward and stand up and bear some level of responsibility for these people that are vulnerable. two cell phone radiation and this x. well evidence of the dangers of cell phone radiation continues to mount the federal communication commission hasn't kept up the f.c.c. guidelines were developed by the wireless industry based off of research done by the military in the nineteen eighties when only a few million americans owned a cell phone so why hasn't government regulation kept up with rapidly advancing technology the reality is there is no regulation in the united states in that the fox is in charge of the chicken coop that is to say for many years under
12:12 pm
republicans and democrats the heads of the f.c.c. the federal communications commission have all come from the telecom industry in two thousand and seven long time c.e.o. of the cellular telecommunications and internet association tom wheeler was appointed to head the f.c.c. in july two thousand and twelve a government accountability office report said the f.c.c. is now twenty two year old exposure and testing will choir should be reassessed later that year the f.c.c. opened a notice to the inquiry thousands of comments poured in from scientific experts public health officials and doctors six years later the trump administration replaced f.c.c. head tom wheeler with former verizon lawyer. and the f.c.c. still hasn't taken action reporting from boom bust or t. l gox one of the largest crypto currency exchanges located in japan which lost hundreds of billions of dollars i think it was four hundred seventy five million
12:13 pm
back in twenty fourteen before they went into bankruptcy may be paying more of their customers money back but the ultimate rate at this time is undetermined a court has ruled that creditors and title to receive their claims could be paid in bitcoin rather than currency equivalents if they did so the actual amount could be huge if they are paid back at the current prices of bitcoin and as we reported. sixty to seventy five or something like that today when mt gox went bye bye bitcoin was worth several hundred dollars and he would talk crypto says christie i have a tech trader phone christi thank you so much for coming back we really appreciate it what do you make of this court ruling i thought that this was really interesting because they said this is a way that they're going to be putting the bankruptcy proceedings on pas and pursuing a civil we have taishan proceedings which means that right now in a bankruptcy non-monetary claims are sold into monetary claims which back then
12:14 pm
about four hundred forty four hundred fifty dollars when the case was filed now in a civil rehabilitation case non-monetary claims are kept as non-monetary clients which as you just mentioned this payout is a huge win for the creditors but there's still a long time before the payout is actually received the creditors need to log in their cars october twenty second this year and each claim of be reviewed and then after that there will be the final claim it's going to start next year february nineteenth so between now and then there's going to be a lot to discuss whether how much of the pro rata each creditor will be given and i should say you know i say mt gox is going to pay pay back it's a trustee who is collecting this money and they're the ones that will actually do this but imagine if you lost your money you think you're out and then all of a sudden you're paid at the current bitcoin price that could be a huge win for folks but stick with facts for a minute you know we saw the coin real hack
12:15 pm
a couple of weeks ago that we saw another south korean hacked last week but what amazed me because we're seeing these things all too often is one of the security analysts said about crypto he said you know there are always going to be people out there trying to hack i guess that they said they're never going to be one hundred percent safe and. i sort of think that's a cop out i mean maybe it's with the security firm that was prone to protect this crypto what's your what's your thought are they always going to be vulnerable the. as of the distributed ledger well did you know the attack happened on june nineteenth which is the seventh anniversary of mt gox attack so i didn't know the. incidents were not so they're lying to me because they do that. so i guess the security analysts actually does have a point this is a decentralized leisure and so the decentralized leisure the inherent risk is a fifty one percent attack and this attack is very well known it's very well documented and what it says is that it used to be theoretical because people saw
12:16 pm
that takes too much computing power to execute a fifty one percent tax but now with the rise of all points there are a lot of smaller networks and smaller coin the smaller letters out there which makes the system actually variable nable for the small points and so we've seen this happen with the small points so in particular though it's verge and there was monocle. gold all of those actually fell to the fifty one percent type because they were smaller cheaper all clients we've seen this huge i mean i would keep watching this because i think there's something that can be done i'm not ready to say it's always going to be screwed up i mean things are going to be x. all the time. you know forget about crypto currencies but i want to ask about bitcoin we've seen that price just go crazy and up to ninety five intraday to twenty thousand now the price is reported earlier in the show but people are now saying that's it for bitcoin i don't think so what do you think well i think you have to think about it last year twelve months ago when was only actually twenty twenty five hundred dollars so it's actually sustained more than like
12:17 pm
a two times increase and price point so i think it rose more than it fell if you think about it that way and it sustained the price valuation is trading at about six thousand dollars for quite some time now and holding in that pattern so i do think it has risen more than it has decreased if you think about it and so right now basically it has actually fallen because there is a lot of scrutiny between for these hacks in these exchanges and. and that there is a lot of scrutiny of the exchanges because the japanese regulators came out and they issued investigation warrants into six different exchanges in japan so that contributed to a lot of the price decreases last week kristie want to have you back there's always more crypto news that we can get to christiania of the tech trader for him thank you thank you. and that's it for this time thanks for watching you catch boom bust at you tube dot com slash boom bust our two will see that.

argentina venezuela they are mad about bitcoin because they're commies are in freefall those are peripheral currencies when he had a major currency like the dollar the again the euro the panel and sure similar crisis which i believe will happen will have the adoption rate in those countries wall spike as well as a psuedo store of value as a way to preserve wealth because the banking system is completely unsustainable it will not exist as we understand it in ten years time it will not exist central banks are an endangered species. right we also have started five. did you know how this economic. he's not going to talk about no fly just maybe right after the mars explorers one

12:23 pm
possible there was obviously something that flagged an attack travel on a british passport and they pulled me aside and for about an hour and a hoss they kept me off to one when they were checking things they are asked me for my personality they asked me while i was by i was attending and i gave them the conference at james. and then just suddenly they called me into the room they stated we have all this from that you are being deported you are notional to come back into the country for another five years and you need to sign your there wasn't any explanation given they they explained that what i was signing was essentially what they had told me the and then they bought me a hit to beat they they treated me ok except for the lack of information back and the whole experience of course is a little bit unnerving focus of the conferences is to try and create a media climate across o.e.c.d. countries that. it is much more free and safe for journalists to work in but when i come to these comes and says i am a vehicle there are ukrainian contingent there are that we can all me sometimes and
12:24 pm
laugh when i speak so there is a lot of resistance to watch what russian journalists have to say and so he representatives from russia are also not here too in the same way that the ukrainian delegation is well as paula said there she wasn't given any explanation for why she was denied entry however under ukrainian law foreigners must be given a reason if they're denied access or paulo has had to leave ukraine before previously because she was getting death threats in twenty fifteen she was covering a story about wildfires sweeping through the area around chernobyl and asking people about how the situation was unfolding ukrainian journalist unhappy with paula being allowed entry to the country launched an online campaign and called for people to kill her since she then started receiving death threats on her twitter account from his followers and subsequently fled the country or is that. well the o s e has already given its official reaction expressing regret and stressing all participating states should facilitate free travel for journalists across the
